Clwb Camera Aberystwyth Camera Club

A Friendly Club for the Enthusiast

Portrait of Geoff ThomsonI started taking photographs as a teenager. I bought a very basic 35mm camera, fully manual, and used a hand held light-meter to determine the settings. I started using colour slide film because I was told it was better. I got my first SLR a Zenith when I was 20; it was much better because I could “see” what I was taking.

I moved onto a pair of Minolta’s (different film speeds in each), a range of zoom lenses and a flash gun. I upgraded these to auto-focus Canon’s in 1994 and in 2005 I went digital with a Canon SLR, using my existing lenses.

I joined the Aberystwyth Camera Club in the mid 1980’s. In order to enter the print competitions I started printing my own photographs. All my photographs were slides and I like BIG colour pictures, therefore I kitted myself out to print 20 X 16 inch Cibachrome prints. These have to be processed in absolute darkness.

Over the years I have tried most types of photography:- family, macro, close up, birds, animals, butterflies, flowers, fungi, table top, sport, night, movement, portrait, glamour, figure, nude, studio, flash, astronomical, etc. I now take photographs of subjects that please me, these are landscapes, cars, yachts, planes, portraits, figure, but they have to have interesting lighting, mood, colour, shape or pattern.

I have achieved an Associate of the Welsh Photographic Federation (AWPF) Distinction by submitting a panel of 12 prints on the subject of transport.

The digital photographs I have taken have only been processed with the Canon software that comes with the cameras, I want to learn to use Photoshop to improve my pictures.
